Attack Ship - Covert Assault
1. Disable shield system
You'll start out in the jail cell with a Combat Knife as your only weapon. Switch to throw poison knife and head out of the cell. You'll be in a larger room above the main hangar with two Skedar near the elevator on the right. Wait for the Skedar below to run around to the elevator, then head around the balcony to the elevator. You'll hear Cassandra scream and fall over (nothing kills her), quickly throw the knife into the Skedar standing at the back of the elevator. If you missed, try to pick up the knife and try again or just restart. Eventually the Skedar will fall over and drop his Mauler, grab it and set it to charged shot.
Rush around to the front of the elevator and shoot the second Skedar. Grab his Mauler and go around to the lower area beyond the elevator with the three consoles. Shoot each one with a charged shot to destroy them, once all three are destroyed the shield system will be down and you'll have completed objective 1.
2. Access navigational systems
Elvis and the Maian soldiers will enter the ship and you'll now have back-up. Head over to the elevator and call it up. Go in and head down, once you leave the elevator Elvis will run forward and give you an AR34 chock-full of ammo, so switch to it and get ready for a fire-fight. Head up the ramp into the main hangar, you'll hear a strange alarm go off and several Skedar will come out of the large doors on each side of the room. Two Maian soldiers will help fend them off, run around and blast the Skedars as they appear, don't forget to grab the ammo they drop. Eventually they'll stop coming and the alarm will cease.
Once Elvis runs up to you and says, "Time to head upwards," go over to the two large blue elevators at one end of the hangar. Go in the left elevator and Elvis will follow you in the right one. Stay on the inner side of the elevator as you reach the top so that the Skedar in the next room don't see you. Once at the top, head forward through the door ahead. Two Skedar will be waiting in the next room, quickly blast them with the AR34 or the Mauler. Three other doors will lead off from the room, head through the right one to find a room with a Skedar and a shield. Blast the Skedar, grab the shield and head through the next door.
You'll be in a longer corridor with a Skedar right at the end, rush over and blast him quickly. Keep going, go through the next door into a corridor with a door straight ahead and one on the left wall. Go through the one on the left to find the room with the Skedar star maps. Blast the two Skedar here and wait for Elvis to arrive. He'll work on the terminal below the rotating green spheres, once he's finished you'll have completed objective 2.
3. Gain control of bridge
Leave via the door you came through before, then go through the door on your left in the corridor. You'll now be in a darker area and a Skedar will probably be right in front of you, so use the charged-up shots from the Mauler to blast it easily. Head forward and go up the long ramp on the right, blasting the Skedar waiting near the top. Go to the top, then go down the long hallway on the right, and blast the Skedar at the other end. Make sure Elvis is following you, then head around the corner and look for an opening in the wall on the right. Head up the partially hidden ramp to the upper level, and blast the Skedar in front of the blue door. Head through the door and you'll be in a room with two Skedar atop ramps leading up to an elevator.
Blast the two Skedar and head over to the elevator. Once Elvis catches up he'll tell you to keep going and he'll meet up with you later. Go in the elevator up to the bridge ante-chamber. Once at the top you'll see another elevator ahead, jump in and take out the Mauler. Once the elevator reaches the top you'll be in the bridge, facing a huge Skedar banked by two regular Skedar. Blast all three of them with charged shots and try to find the double Mauler the larger Skedar dropped.
Stand just inside the bridge facing the elevator and you should notice two doors on the wall behind it. Eventually Elvis will come out of one and warn Joanna of the incoming Skedar, just make sure that Elvis doesn't get caught up with them when they appear. Once the doors open and Skedar come through, quickly blast them before they get too close. Finish off the group to complete the mission.
1. Disable shield system
Once you begin in the prison cell, switch to throw poison knife and head out into the shield control room. Wait for the Skedar below to run around so he doesn't spot you, then head around the balcony and quickly throw the knife into the Skedar behind the elevator, if you miss restart and try again. Once the Skedar falls down, grab the Mauler it drops and set it to secondary fire. Sneak around the elevator, pop the second Skedar and grab his Mauler. Head around to the rear of the elevator to the three consoles, then destroy each with a single charged shot to disable the shields to complete objective 1.
2. Access navigational systems
Head over to the elevator and ride it down to the hangar bay area. Once you leave the elevator, run up to Elvis to receive an AR34 from him. Take it out and head up to the hangar. Once the strange alarm goes off, head over to the two large doors near the Skedar ship and start blasting Skedar emerging from beyond the doors. Wait there and finish them off, don't forget to pick up the ammo they drop. Once the alarm stops and Elvis calls you over to the elevator at the rear of the hangar, head over and ride the left one up to the next level. Take out the Mauler and head through the door ahead.
Blast the two Skedar by the left and right doors in the next room, then head right and pop the Skedar in the next room. Grab the shield on the table and head through the door to the left. Rush down the long room and blast the Skedar, then head through the door to the next corridor, then go left to find the room with the Skedar star maps. Pop the two Skedar and wait here for Elvis to arrive. Once he finishes working on the console below the holographic spheres you'll have completed objective 2.
3. Sabotage engine systems
Head back out the door you came through and go left. Pop the Skedar beyond the door, then head up the ramp on the right and knock down the Skedar near the top. Head down the long corridor at the top and blast the Skedar at the end. Make sure Elvis catches up to you, then head down the next corridor. Keep going and you'll eventually spot a blue door down an opening on the left wall. Open the door and get ready to nail a Skedar that might be standing right in front of you. Go in and pop the Skedar on the left. Head through the door behind the Skedar, then head right. Open the next door and blast the Skedar at the end of the hallway.
Go forward, then you'll spot the engine core room at the end of the hallway. Straight ahead is an identical hallway leading back to the main corridor, use the AR34 to blast the Skedar over by the opening. Equip the Mauler, then rush into the room and charge down the two Skedar hiding behind the core. Once all the Skedar in the room are gone, go over to one of the two openings leading back to the main corridor, then crouch down once and look back at the engine core.
Look up and you'll spot two yellow pylons connected to the core. Fire a single charged shot to destroy each one, but stay well back as the explosion can injure you. With one down, go around to the other opening and destroy the second. Once they're both destroyed, the core will explode after about 10 seconds, so you'll have to rush back to the main corridor before it blows. Quickly dash back down the hallways into the main corridor (Elvis will follow you), then once the core blows the engines will shut down and you'll have completed objective 3.
4. Gain control of bridge
Head back through the blue door to the main corridor, then head over to the wall opposite the door. Move along the wall and you'll eventually find one of the openings leading up to the bridge. Go up the ramp and pop the Skedar in the next hallway. Head through the door into the room before the elevator, blast the two Skedar up the ramps, then head up to the elevator. Head in, leave Elvis and ride up the elevator. Go over to the next elevator and ride it up to the bridge.
Quickly pop the large Skedar between the other two, then move around and finish off the other two. Try to grab the double Mauler the larger Skedar dropped, then face the two doors behind the elevator and wait for Elvis to come through one. Once he appears and warns of the incoming Skedar, Wait for them to come through the two doors, quickly blast them before they get near Elvis. Finish them all off to complete the mission.
1. Disable shield system
The start of this mission will be incredibly tough, you'll need to practice aiming with the Mauler before making it through. You'll have to disable the shield system and open the hangar doors to allow Elvis and the two Maians to enter the hangar. Once you begin, quickly switch to Knife Slash and head out of the cell. Quickly rush around the balcony over to the Skedar standing behind the elevator. As soon as you reach it, slash once into it's back to knock it down instantly, if he spots you try to strafe around to his back while slashing, make sure you don't get hit, otherwise restart and try again.
With the first Skedar down, take out the Mauler it dropped and switch to charged-shot. The other Skedar will be over in front of the elevator, sidestep up to the side of it, then charge out and run towards the Skedar. Pop it quickly with a charged shot before it can fire. If you miss or the shot doesn't kill it, restart and try again. With both Skedar down, head around to the three consoles behind the elevator, then switch back to single shot. Quickly pump one shot into the first console to destroy it, then fire four shots into the other two consoles each to disable the shield system to complete objective 1.
2. Open hangar doors
Now for the hangar bay doors. You should have ten shots left, reload and switch to charged shot. Now for the tricky part. Go over to the elevator and ride it down. Go over to the ramp ahead, then head up into the hangar, but quickly dash back down the ramp when the two patrolling Skedar spot you. Stand around the corner up against the wall near the base of the ramp, then lean out and aim up at the top left corner of the ramp. Once one of the Skedar appear, he'll begin firing at you but will miss. Aim at him, then once the target crosshair turns red, fire. If you missed or the shot didn't kill the Skedar, restart.
Once it's down, quickly run up and grab the ammo it dropped. Try to avoid the fire of the second Skedar, quickly head back down the ramp to the position you were in before. Wait for the second Skedar to appear, then pop him with a charged shot. If you miss, take out the Combat Knife and try to slash it down without taking too much damage. Grab it's ammo and head into the hangar. Go down the ramp opposite the one you just came up, then head over to the elevator below. Ride up the elevator to the hangar bay control room. Once there, turn to face the elevator, then slowly edge out on the right. A Skedar ahead will spot you and fire.
Hide and run over to the other corner of the elevator. Face the other corner and wait for the Skedar to appear. Once it does, charge and blast it with a charged shot. If you miss or it doesn't work, slash it down with the Combat Knife or just try to avoid it. Go around to the back of the elevator and activate the left console of the two near the window to open the hangar doors to complete objective 2.
3. Access navigational systems
If the Skedar is still in the room, quickly head back to the elevator and call it up. Ride it down, once you go back out the corridor you'll find Elvis. He'll give you an AR34 (lifesaver!) then you'll hear the strange alarm go off. Stay where you are with Elvis and watch the elevator door behind you for the other Skedar (if it's still above). The spawning Skedar up in the hangar bay will attack the two Maians there but the Maian Soldiers will take care of them for you. Once the alarm stops and Elvis runs off to the elevator at the rear of the hangar, head up and clear off any remaining Skedar.
Run around and grab all the ammo they dropped, you should find a boatload of Maulers everywhere. Once you've found as many as possible, head over to the left elevator at the rear of the hangar and ride it up. Stay on the inner part of the elevator (the wall closest to Elvis' elevator) so that the Skedar above won't see you. Take out the Mauler, once at the top head over to the door ahead. Stand in the center of the door and open it while standing a little further back. You should be able to see the Skedar on the left but it won't see you. Pop it with a charged shot, then slowly edge around the left until you can see a part of the other Skedar on the right.
Pop it and grab both Skedar's ammo. Go up to the door where the second Skedar was on the right and open it while standing on the right side. Slowly edge around the wall until you can see the Skedar in the next room. Pop it, if it spots you quickly run inside and blast it in the face. Take out the AR34 and walk up to the door on the left. Switch to Use Scope and open the door. Run forward and mow down the Skedar at the end of the room, the zoom function will help. Take the Mauler out again and head to the other end of the long room.
Open the door at the end and turn left in the next hallway. Open the door there to find the room with the navigational system. Slowly edge around the right side of the door until you can see a Skedar standing in front of the console. Pop it, but if it spots you, back up and shut the door then wait for it to come through before finishing it off. A second Skedar will be on the other side of the console, slowly edge around the edge of the door until you can see part of it, pop it then head into the room. Once Elvis runs up to the console, leave via the door you came through and turn left in the corridor. By now Elvis should have finished working on the console and you'll have completed objective 3.
4. Sabotage engine systems
Open the door at the end of the hallway and get ready to pop another Skedar in here. If you can't see it, go over to the opening on the right wall and look up the sloping corridor. Pop the Skedar there, then head up to the long narrow corridor. You'll have already faced two Skedar in this area, a third one might be down the corridor, use the AR34 to blast it. Wait for Elvis to catch up, then head down the long hallway. Round the corner at the end and keep going until you can see a blue door down a small corridor on the left. Go up to the door, if you only faced two Skedar back in the long corridor area, the third one will be right behind the door so get ready to blast it. If you've already finished it off it won't be there. Head into the room and quickly pop the Skedar on the left.
Wait for Elvis, then go through the door on the left. Round the corner on the right in the next room and open the door. Pop the Skedar at the end of the short corridor, then head back out to the large room. Go down to the other door opposite you, enter and turn left. Open the door and pop the Skedar straight ahead. Go forward, around the corner is the engine core room as well as three more Skedar. You should spot the first one, use the AR34 to pick it off from the corridor, then equip the Mauler and carefully edge into the room. Once the other two spot you, quickly hide and wait for them to emerge.
Once they appear finish them off. If Elvis can see them he'll assist with his double Phoenix. Once all the Skedar are down, Go back into one of the hallway openings and crouch once. Face the core and wait for Elvis to run up to you. Once you're both safely out of range, shoot the large brown arm extension off the core. The explosion can injure you so make sure you're well covered. Once it dies down head over to the other hallway opening and shoot the second brown arm off. Once both are gone, you'll have ten seconds to escape from the core before it blows. Quickly stand up and rush back down the corridor behind you, out into the larger room and out to the main corridor. Once the engine blows you'll have completed objective 4.
5. Gain control of bridge
Go forward to the wall opposite the door leading to the engine core room, then look along the wall ahead for an opening. Keep an eye out for any Skedar around, then head up the ramp and make sure Elvis is following you. As you near the top, face the inner side of the corridor and slowly sidestep up. A Skedar will be standing up in the next corridor, try to blast it before it spots you, otherwise pop it before it hits you. Go up to the Skedar's body and head through the door behind it. Go through the next door ahead, then quickly dash up the ramp on the right in the next room. Pop the Skedar at the top of the ramp around the pillar, then quickly go back down and finish off the second one before it charges at Elvis. Once both are down, head up to the elevator door at the top of the balcony.
Head through and call the elevator down. Elvis will leave you here, ride up the elevator, then head forward to the next one. As you ride up this second one, take out the AR34 and get ready to hide. Stay at the rear of the elevator, once you reach the top you'll be facing the three Skedar inside the bridge area. Quickly dash behind the wall on the left for cover, then zoom in and lean out to see the Skedar on the right. Fire away at it's head, but if it fires hide and wait for it to stop. Go up to the edge of the wall and lean out so you can see the middle Skedar with the double Maulers. It'll probably have jumped off the platform it was standing on and be on the ground ahead, fire away at it's head and hide if it fires. Once he's down, edge around the corner, lean out and finish off the Skedar on the left.
With all three down, go over to the middle Skedar's remains and pick up the double Mauler. Take them out and turn around to face the two doors behind the elevator. Eventually Elvis will come through one and warn you of the incoming Skedar, a few seconds later Skedar will begin appearing in the small corridors behind the doors. As they enter the room, they'll run around in circles, quickly blast them with charged shots before they get too close to you or Elvis. You'll have to face about four or five Skedar, once they're all down you'll have gained control of the bridge and completed the mission. Phew, this one is damn tough, the start will be the toughest part as you'll have very little ammo and you must be very accurate to make it through. But once you meet Elvis it should be easier from then on, just make sure that no Skedar get near him or they'll knock him down easily.
